Personal profile


I joined the University in 2000 to work as a researcher on an EPSRC project characterising the indoor communications channel and a Radiocommunications Agency (now OFCOM) sponsored project characterising radiowave propagation through vegetation. I had previously worked for a defence contractor and a computer networking company.

I started work as a lecturer in the (then) Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering in 2002 where I became the Admissions Tutor and Programme Coordinator for all undergraduate and integrated Masters Electronic Engineering, Computer Engineering and Networking degree programmes. I was the Course Leader for the BSc (Hons) Computer Networks degree programme and the Programme Manager for the Foundation Degree (FDEng) in Electronic Engineering with the Royal Navy.

I have been the Head of the School of Computing since 2013, responsible for the operational efficiency and effectiveness of the School; as well as leading the School towards realising the University’s strategic vision. I also have a keen research interest in the development of secure systems, identifying vulnerabilities in systems, utilising features to identify users and network protocol analysis.
